“Citi has been in the Buffalo area since 1976 when it opened its first office with just 10 people near the Buffalo Niagara Airport. Since then, the Buffalo office has grown to be a major player in our global operations with over 1,800 local employees. This purchase cements our continued desire to be one of the largest private-sector employers in Western New York,” said Anthony Vazquez, Buffalo Site President, Citi.

Citi will continue to be a long-time client at CrossPoint and we look forward to Citi’s continued growth in Western New York,” said Michael Montante, Uniland vice president.
